How to Make Chocolate Truffles:

It’s as simple as heating cream, mixing with chocolate, rolling into balls, and coating with your favorite garnishes. We love to use coconut flakes, sprinkles, chocolate shavings, powdered sugar, nuts, or even more melted chocolate. The more chocolate the better, right?

Easy Chocolate Truffles are one of my go-to recipes to make for bake sales, class parties, or any night where I need a chocolate fix. Which is often.

What is a Chocolate Truffle?

Chocolate Truffles are a type of chocolate confection made with a ganache (cream and melted chocolate) center and coated with whatever you choose. The sky is the limit! I love that every one of these could be different if that’s what you chose.

It’s also great that you can add in flavor extracts to make these just about any flavor. I made this batch with orange liqueur but next time I plan to use strawberry extract. Chocolate Covered Strawberry Truffles, anyone?

How long can you keep Chocolate Truffles?

These should stay good on your counter in an airtight container for 3-5 days or in the fridge for up to 2 weeks. I like them best served at room temp, but you can keep them cool until about an hour before you’re ready to serve and then take them out of the refrigerator. I cannot wait for you to try these!

I originally made this Chocolate Truffle Recipe back in 2014 right before Valentine’s Day.

It felt like a safe recipe because I was way too scared to attempt any difficult baking! :) They’ve become a favorite at our house and I’m still perfecting the recipe 4 years later. Some other favorite EASY dessert recipes are Easy French Silk Pie, Easy Peach Cobbler Recipe, and Best Homemade Brownies from Scratch. <— We have come a LONG way!
